Jim Stevens is an award-winning international artist and author who is also legally blind, with only a pin dot of vision remaining in both eyes. Jim lost his sight as a result of combat wounds while serving in the U.S. Army. His loss of vision forced the artist to rethink his approach to the art he loves. He uses a combination of visual lenses along with his sense of touch to complete each of his extraordinary paintings, scrimshaw etchings and custom works of art. Jim has defied the the odds.
In Jim's words: "A man with a vision is never truly blind"
Abstract Linear Painting
Portrait painted on a clear acrylic panel that floats over an abstract painted on a komatex panel. The portrait is painted without shading. The abstract painting creates all the shading in the portrait.
Two paintings – one image.
24" x 36"
Acrylic painting on over 1,000 strands of monofilament line – each strand is anchored in the case with sterling silver.
The opaque and semi-transparent materials combine with empty space to create a work of art that appears both solid yet weightless – a captured shadow.
